Vermont vs UMass Lowell Predictions and Betting Picks

The 2024 America East Tournament final will be Vermont vs. Umass Lowell. It is a game between the top seeds of the league, with the Catamounts on top and the River Hawks in second place. Also, the former has qualified for the NCAA Tournament nine times since 2003. On the other hand, UMass Lowell was promoted to Division I in the 2013-2014 season. It is still looking for a chance to join March Madness.

According to a pay per head for basketball bookies, the over/under stands at 135.5, and the Catamounts are 7.5-point favorites, according to SportsLine’s consensus.

While Vermont won both games in the regular season, the final tally belies how tight the second game was. In the first game, the River Hawks went to overtime and narrowly fell by 12 points in Patrick while shooting only 9 for 35 (25%) from beyond the arc in both games. With any degree of improvement in Vermont’s shooting, Lowell will most certainly play them to a tie.
